received for this one and 24 prizes
Prize No. 3 although the smallest
from a financial standpoint is considered
the most important in every other
way and associations are encouraged
to try for it more than any other
one, since it constitutes the foundation
on which the work is built and
carried on. It was a $5 prize to the
associations holding and reporting 12
regular meetings during -the year.
These reports gave a full account of

COUNTY BORROWS MONEY
FOR CURRENT EXPENSES
The legislature authorized the
chairman of the highway commission '
and the county treasurer to borrow
$70,000 in anticipation of the collection
nf the taxes of 1!)22 to meet the
current expenses of the county on a
cash basis for the fiscal year. *
Some time ago the borrowing committee
made a loan for $20,000 and
this gave the county the opportunity
to pay the officials and the other expenses
monthly. The legislature alco
authorized the issuing of $150,000
more of road bonds and the right to
borrow until the bonds are sold so j
that the work on the roads might
start atonce. That sum was borrowed
from the Exchange bank. The rate
was very low. The additional $50,-!
000 authorized to meet current ex-'
penses has just been borrowed from
the National bank with three notes, '
one for $10,000 payable in December
and one for $20,000 payable in Feb-!
ruary and teh other for $20,000 pay- j
able in March without interest at all.
? ' ' ^ i. ? |
i nis is aoout tne most javuiaun- iuau i
that we have heard of being negotiat- j
ed in the state, favorable for the tax- '
payer. It saves the people from paying
any interest at all and gives the
county the privilege of paying its obligations
promptly as they come due. '
JUST A HINT TO
PARENTS OF NEWBERRY |
Just a hint to the parents in New- j
berry. Have you bought a season j
athletic ticket for your son or daughter?
If you want to make that boy I
real happy and at the same time save j
money on him buy a ticket for him. j
If he is a normal boy he will come j
pretty near seeing every game of ath- i
letics sports played on the college j
diamond. He may worry you half i
to death to' get the 50c to admit him j
through the gate, or he may take a
chance on finding a knot hole. Anyway
he is going to be there. You
can count on that. Now you can get
a season ticket that will admit him to J
all games played on the local diamond
between March 15, 1922, and March !
15, 1923, for $5.00, and will have no!
further worry about it. This will ad- j
mit him to over $15.00 worth of1
sports. A little sum in subtraction
will show you how much you can save j
in mnnpv. not to mention the worry i
you will be spared every time a game i
is played over there. Then, too, by
buying an athletic ticket you will be
helping to build a gymnasium for that j
boy, because he is going to be a stu-j
dent over there before so many years, j
Doesn't it sound good to you? You
can getji ticket from any member of *
the committee, or at the New Book
Remember that the season ticket'
will be good for the game with the
"Comers" Friday afternoon. Tickets
will be on sale at the gate. !

LEGION NOTES. <J>
Recently the post of the American M<
Legion in Mobile proposed to confer tei
honorary membership upon Ex-Jucl/e ve:
Landis. But Judge Landis declined te:
election to membership on the ground Th
that no man who had not worn the !c0]
uniform in the war should be entitled 'in
to membership in the legion. He then \ cf
added, "The American legion is the cd
only thinj? ir? the world that I ever er:
wanted to join and the one thing I ,
can not join.'-' jr.l
A young man was heard to remark up
on the street in Newberry recently, sts
''I wish Uncle Sam would get into te;
another fracas just long enough for co
me to become eligible to wear one tr!
'of those buttons," referring to a Le- th<
gion button. Uncle Sam would not be
accept him when the World war was St
going on. He was too young.
Members of the American Legion, Mi
wear your Log-ion button. It is a Ec
badge of honor. Just anybody can't th
wear one. Only those who served ha
honorably in the World war and have co
joined the American Legion can wear
them. If you are a member of the at
Legion you can get a button at the
New Book store. If you see a Strang- JE
er in town wearing a Legion but'ton '
speak to him. That button should be ;
There are still quite a few ex-ser- in
vice men in the community who have 11
not aligned themselves with the Le- _
gion. And there are too many memnnof

standing through having failed to pay j
dues for this year. You ask why the'
American Legion.? What has it done? in
If it had nothing else to its credit ai
save the legislation it has secured for ot
the disabled its existence would have
proved worth while. From the date > ^
of its organization it has made the
i care of the disabled its first duty. !
Some of the legislation secured forjaL
the disabled include the Sweet bill J ca
raising compensation; the Darrow i in
bill, raising Vocational training pay;!
' the first Langley bill, making hospi-1 v
[ tal building' appropriation; the second
Sweet bill, consolidating and de- P1
i centralizing the Veterans' bureau,
and various other benefits for the dis
abled. The light of the local post has ^
not been hid under a bushel. You
can readily recall to mind some of its
accomplishments in the community.
Now may I ask you who have not af- ^
filiated with the legion, what have J
you done, first of all, for your dis- ^
abled buddies, and second, the com
munity in which you live? We need ^
you in our post. "In union there is ^
strength" is as true today as it has ^
alwavs been. .
Then, too, it may be that you are ca
depriving some good lady from eligi- cu
bility to membership in the auxiliary w;
to our post. In order to be eligible gn
to membership in the auxiliary the j n
relative through whom the applica- ' ca
tion is made must be a member in j wj
good standing in the American le-1 +a
gion. In the membership drive put: jn
on recently by the auxiliary the teams ' jrN
were greatly handicapped because or ^
the number of ex-service men who ei- [ ^
ther had not joined the legion, or at j ^
the present time were not in good;
standing. Fellows, let's give the la-!
dies a fair chance. They are our!
best friends. } re

rou CERTAINLY DO 1IV
NOT READ CLOSELY;"
rhe Herald and News Has Favored
Good Roads for All the
Townships ! Bl
I 'believe that the public will agree
ivith me that Col. Aull is one of the Co
most all-round men that we have in j
the county. The colonel is a live wire '
in the newspaper business. He is a t
school hustler. He is one of the!
greatest good road advocates that we ^
have in the county. But I must ex-1^
press my surprise that he has 'been ' ^
pleading for the building of good ^
roads all over the county except in j
No. 10 township. j4
No, Colonel, just why you fail to w,
see the importance of a good road
through a county so densely populat- CQ
ed with white citizens along the Po-vu^
maria road leading directly through
No. 10 township to Pornaria, I am
unable to see. No. 10 may look very cj
small, but her taxable property is ap- (
proximately a' half million dollars, j.
And she is bearing the burden of her
share of the half million, $50,000, of
- ? - - J - A ? J '
tiip special xunus appropnatea iur y
road building in New ^erry county, j
And you must bear in mind that No.
10 has not received one dollar of this ^
amount except on a few miles' stretch ..
along the line between No. 9 and 10. j
Now, Colonel, you said that the
road that is already built through No. ^
11 township passing St. Phillips cc
church to Mr. Caldwell Ruff's, thence
^ , ft
to Pomar;a, was the nearest route *
leading from the county seat to Pomaria.
If this be the case it would ^
certainly be a reflection upon such
good old citizens as Malcomb John- , j
stone, Jeff Gallman, Micajah Epps,
Major Jacob Epting, all of whom
have passed over the river, in honor
and credit, not only to themselves but m
the county where they spent their ^
lives. It was these good old citizens '
o! New'berry county who petitioned u
tho legislators to grant a charter to ^
open a public highway on the most ^
direct route leading from Newberry ^
to Pomaria, and that charter was
granted which is now on record. That . .
read was surv?yed and opened up '
tnrougn i\o. ju emu iu.:> tuc \jmj ^
chartered road in this county.
As I have already stated, this road
connects with the state highway near
Mr. John C. Neel's and does not exceed
13 miles to where it leads out ^
into the road about one mile above
Pomara. Within this distance there
are 38 white families living directly?.r
on ths road and two-thirds of them
own their own homes. Also there ^
are three cross roads and five branch
roads intersecting into the Pomaria _
We went before the county board
which we believe to be an honest and
unbiased board of tribunals, with
these plain facts, and they have given
us the assurance that something is
going to be done in the way of a ^
good road in No. 10 township in the
near future. .
Now, Colonel, you know you spoke
of building that nice little bungalow an
down at the old home place, and how
you would delirht in living down
there where the flour and meal made ^
your head as white as snow when you
were dipping it up into my sack when
we were small boys. Come across,
Colonel, don't forget the days of
your youth. I believe yoa have ??
some as true friends in No. 10 township
as you can find anywhere. And
we are going to get that good road
right down past our homes and we
will be delighted to have you and the ^
little American boys with Mrs. Aull ^
to stop occasionally when you are go- ^
ing down to the old home place?and
pret a drink of this pure good old limestone
water of ours.
